Very good, value for money

Myself and my partner were in Edinburgh for a family wedding on a Thursday night and having stayed in Edinburgh before but never at this hotel we were pleasantly surprised at the standard of room, surroundings and meals for the relatively low cost. Not a budget hotel but you definitely get what you pay for. Very convenient for the hotel where the wedding was being held at a fraction of what it would have cost to stay there. Friendly and helpful staff with a pleasant and comforting welcome given. I would consider this hotel for any future visits and recommend it to others.

Mixed feelings

The hotel looks great & our room was ultra-stylish. We loved the breakfast -- really one of the best in a long time. On the other hand, the street noise was intrusive -- noisy drunks until about 3am. Also, many of the male staff seemed to be more concerned with looking cool than bothering with the visitors (but the female staff, especially at breakfast, were lovely!).

We really couldn't have been looked after any better

The service was friendly throughout, from staff at Reception to the maids. Everything we needed was dealt with efficiently and professionally, and with a smile! The room was spacious, modern and well presented, the bed was comfortable and the shower room was smart and well designed. We can highly recommend Apex.

The best thing about my stay was...

Central location and the breakfast.
